The most politically correct and incorrect tweets of the day from across the political spectrum.

New Delhi: While Delhiites coughed, choked and caught their breath this weekend, politicians aired their views.

Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Harsh Vardhan insisted on the importance of carrots!

Union Minister of Environment, Prakash Javadekar went in search of ragas.

And if you think the air pollution crisis is his priority today…

BJP leader Vijay Goel’s stunt to break the `odd-even’ car rules in Delhi got him the attention he obviously craved — at least from the opposition.

It takes a degree of insensitivity to boast of clear blue skies at a time like this, Mr. Kant.

Lawyer and activist Prashant Bhushan has his ear to the ground.

We can all agree with Congress’ Milind Deora on this issue.

We’ll have to wait an entire year before we know if US Senator Bernie Sanders is right.

Prime Minister Modi just said in Thailand that it was a great time to do business in India — guess he hadn’t read this by Australian journalist Siobhan Heanue.

We’re not sure who’s terrorising who, sir.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
